I have an
i5 7th Gen
GTX 1050Ti
8 GB RAM
WIN 10

I purchased a ACER 23.8 inch LED IPS panel monitor today. I am using the HDMI cord.
It worked fine for about 4-5 hours and then the monitor went black like turned off i think for about 1-2 seconds and then came back on again. This happenned 2-3 times then stopped.
I checked for broken or damaged wires - there were none. Also i checked if all the wires are connected properly, they are.
Also there is a very small dead pixel visible on the right hand side of the monitor.
I dont understand whats going on since this is a brand new monitor. Could it be bad components?

EDIT: A friend suggested a slower hertz rate. I lowered that from 74 to 60 now. I need to observe for sometime. Will update.
